Hide fonts in Photoshop and Office apps

Post by Simicro » Sat Feb 22, 2020 12:53 pm

Hi,

I'm using Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4 and Office 2016 on Windows 10.

My only need is to hide the fonts I don't use (system fonts or other fonts) in the font menus of the above mentioned applications.

Can MainType do that?

If so, which version of MainType should I get?

I assume it's not possible

I suspect that uninstalling them is the only way. However, uninstalling system fonts is not recommended.

Using a font manager makes it easy to uninstall and reinstall groups of fonts. Just add them to a group and uninstall/reinstall them in one fell swoop.
